The final of the 8th World Championship ended on the afternoon of November 3. No. 2 seed IG team from LPL beat FNC 3-0 in the final stage and won the first S World Championship of LPL and the first IG World Championship. After the competition, Rookie, the singles player, attended the award ceremony at the Korean Stadium. When receiving the questions from the Korean host, he answered them in Chinese, and won the favor and cheers of a large number of LPL fans. After all, Rookie also talked about the reasons for the Chinese interview in an interview with the domestic media.
When asked, “Why do you want to speak Chinese again when you are interviewed by a Korean host on stage?”
Rookie answered: When I came to the stadium from the hotel this morning, I always thought if I would win the championship, because there would be many Chinese fans on the spot. If I interviewed the champion, maybe the host would be Korean. The language I spoke with him must be Korean. I wondered if I would like to speak to the host. Do I need to say it in Chinese? When I was about to say that, the host first said to me, anyway, so many Chinese fans, you can help me translate my words to them. In fact, even if he did not say so, I would speak Chinese out of my own initiative.
After that, Rookei said: Although he is a Korean, he is also a LPL player. Many Chinese fans have high passion, enthusiasm and expectations for us by the finals. If I didn’t say how I felt in Chinese at that time, it might not be very polite to you. As an LPL player, what I have to do is interact with Chinese fans.
Finally, talking about my growth since I came to LPL, Rookie also said: If I had stayed in Korea, my strength would probably only have developed to a lesser or similar level, but because I came to China, I could always develop myself, no matter what aspect, spirit, strength or state, all of them. In terms of life in China, however, I grew up a lot. It’s also because in China that I can stick to such a good state. Although the four years since I came to China have not been so smooth for me and my achievements have not been so good, I can always grasp that spirit and develop my own spirit. State, so the player who came to China is a perfect choice for me. I am very grateful to kakao and myself at that time.
So, do you have anything to say about the interview with Rookie?
